Youth Camps

Adventures for the budding scientist in your life

Bell camps provide a fun and enriching environment that encourages campers to explore their scientific passions and discover new interests. We accommodate various learning styles as we explore, create, and experiment with STEAM related activities and exhibits throughout the museum. Led by talented educators, each week at Bell summer camps includes hands-on investigations, planetarium visits, games, creative projects, field trips around the University’s Twin Cities campus, and much more!

Become a member! For as little as $95 your household can become Bell Museum members and receive discounted camp pricing —one of the many benefits of membership. The museum is also proud to offer $15 Curiosity Memberships for qualifying families.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss accommodations for your camper, please contact us at bellcamps@umn.edu or call (612) 624-8866.
